Why Doesn’t Purple Koi Designs Do Craft Shows and Why You Shouldn’t Either?

Concinnity2013bI don’t do craft shows because years ago I did, and well, lost a lot of money by investing in craft shows. It broke my heart and left me artistically and creatively ill. I have talked to other creatives who have also gone through the same experience. Many people go to craft show to look at what other people are making and then claim they will just go home and make it instead. You will hear this many times per hour at all craft shows and sometimes at art shows as well. People who go to craft shows are not always there to spend money. They are there to get ideas. This practice severely harms the creative industry.

Conventions on the other hand are filled with people wanting to help support creative people. Especially at geeky and nerdy conventions where the underdog can rise as a star and can be fully appreciated. Writers, artists, and other creatives can find the loving support they need to keep being awesome at conventions. It becomes a WIN-WIN situation as fans and creatives both gather excitement and fun throughout the events.

If you are an artist, writer, or creative, starting out in an “Artist Alley” is a great way to start. If you have a large variety of items, and/or want to sell other things you love, then you can look into what it might take to become a vendor at your next favorite convention!
